Who am I?

Who am I? I'm the one who once asked if ground beef had to be washed before using. I'm the one who looked befuddled in the meat section of the grocery because I didn't know if I was supposed to take the string off the roast before I cooked it. I'm the one who won't eat fish. Or most cheese. Or anything white and creamy, like sour cream or yogurt. The one who won't eat lobsters, shrimp, crab, or anything else that resembles an alien, or anything that isn't supposed to be chewed when eaten (oysters, jello).

Yet, I am also someone who loves to eat -- who is fascinated by food. And over the past few years, I've grown to love cooking as well, despite my limitations.

So, who am I?  I am the Fearful Gourmet.

Please join me as I broaden my eating and cooking horizons!


  1. For someone who loves food, and the parent of a vegetarian, you are missing out of the white and creamy group (not to mention great sources of protein and calcium, particularly for the ladies) BIG time -- brie, greek yogurt, ricotta and cream cheese just to name a few!

  2. I guess you didn't read my other blog - http://portwashingtonfood.blogspot.com. When I went to that French restaurant - Le P'tite Framboise - I actually tried Brie!! Did I love it - no. But you have to give me credit for trying it!
